Building Bridges to Better Health
We may be physically distant from each other, but now it’s more important than ever to come together. That’s why our 2021 theme is “Building Bridges to Better Health.”
Making communities safe and healthy is public health’s top priority. COVID-19 has made that even more important. Even though we won’t gather in person, social media and virtual platforms make it easier than ever for us to connect, create and take action.
NPHW 2021 will take place completely virtually April 5-11, 2021. Stay tuned for updates on daily themes and lots of ways to get involved.
We know that by building connections, we make our communities healthier, safer and better for all.
Help us keep the conversation going
In the midst of the most challenging public health crisis of our lifetimes, it's more important than ever to celebrate public health.
Help us continue to thank public health for all the hard work everyone's doing to keep our communities safe.
You can also continue to apply a COVID-19 lens to the NPHW daily themes and help us keep equity at the forefront of the ongoing worldwide conversation about public health.
APHA hosted NPHW events entirely online this year, to protect our partners and neighbors during the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about what APHA is doing, and what you can do to prepare without panic.
Our NPHW fact sheets are available year-round on the NPHW website so we can keep the momentum and learning going. Learn more about this year's daily themes and how you can be part of the movement for science, action and health, year-round.
How else can you stay involved?
- Check out our NPHW series on Public Health Newswire. We have guest posts from APHA leaders, including one from APHA President Lisa Carlson on tending to our mental wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic, and more.
- In the workplace: partner across public and private sectors to make sure decisions are made with the public’s health in mind.
- Within our communities: let’s start new conversations with our neighbors and become advocates for positive change.
Working together, we can build healthier communities and eventually, the healthiest nation. We need your help to get there.
